Harmony considers road purchase


Fri, Jul 12th, 2013
Posted in Harmony Government

Cory Scrabeck approached the Harmony City Council with an offer to sell some of his property to the city. Third Avenue southwest ends at his property, and Scrabeck owns the rest of the road all the way to the end.

Scrabeck said he has closed it and put up “No Trespassing” signs, but people still go through his property. “Instead of worrying about insurance, I can offer it up for sale or shut it down permanently,” he said.

Scrabeck said he would be in favor of trading the road for an area known as “Out lot C,” which includes the pond. He does not, however, want to own the pond itself. City Administrator Jerome Illg said the city should retain ownership of the pond for cleaning it out when needed.

According to Scrabeck, it would cost $50,000- $60,000 to put that road in there today. He offered to turn it over to the city for $30,000.

Mayor Steve Donney said they have to think about how much they value that road. He said he measured the area at 1.05 acres. Councilor Debbie Swenson reminded Scrabeck that if the city owns it, they can improve the road and assess the cost to the property owner, which would be him. If the city owned the road, which is a gravel road right now with no curb and gutter, there would be a 25-foot setback for any structures.

Mayor Donney recommended they leave the Out lot C option out, as it would create a lot of complications. City Attorney Richard Nethercut asked if the road even meets standards for a city street. Illg said they would have to tear it up to put a water main through there.

Councilor Jim Bakken felt it was necessary to have someone else look at the property and determine its worth before they make any decisions. There was discussion as to what would determine the worth; would it be the cost to build that road right now, or the price of land? Nethercut said they could have the area appraised if they hired an appraiser.

“It’s not something we have to have,” said Donney of the road. “But it would be nice to have that access.”

A motion to offer Scrabeck $25,000 was passed, with Bakken voting against, and Swenson abstaining from voting. A purchase agreement will be drawn up, and the offer is good for 30 days.
